NEW RELEASE AND NEW CHALLENGE - LACY SUNSHINE



Hello Everyone...

Raining...raining...raining..today and cold!!...but I have noticed,even though this is the coldest month of the season,is that the mornings are slightly lighter at 6.00am...so that must mean we are starting the turn...then I can start to moan how hot I am..lol..

I'm here today to share a new release for Lacy Sunshine and a new challenge starting over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog  ...

I was so impressed with all the entries in our last challenge...all of them were just lovely...so many gorgeous under the sea Christmas cards and projects...thanks to all who played along....

This weeks challenge theme is "Flowers"...

And this is the cutie I was able to play with...she comes in three parts...the pot..the bamboo with leaves and of course the Pretty...

LUCKY BAMBOO...FLOWER POT PRETTIES


There she is...isn't she lovely...


She is coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and copics.

I printed the bamboo out 6 times and fussy cut all the leaves and bamboo stalks
and the gorgeous image!!...that's a lot of fussy cutting..

I embossed a Chinese or Japanese stamped image on the front of the pot and embossed it in gold..then coloured the pot  with R17 red copic...

The stamp spells out "Friendship"...but as I only used one half of the stamp this says either "Friend" or "Ship"...



The side view....the papers from Rosies studio "Regal Collection"...the butterfly from my stash..and lots of liquid pearls...



The other side..I cut a twig off my flowering and messy Camellia and glued on silk blossoms and added a thin gold bow.

And last but not least....this was the inspiration photo I found on the net on how to do my Bamboo....

And there you go...

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope to see you over at Lacy Sunshine and if you click HERE you will see what my very talented teamies have done too...

See you tomorrow..

Entering these challenges

Love the bold colours on this pretty image. All that cutting! Wow!! Gorgeous card. The last few days have been really hot here in West Sussex UK. Saps your energy completly. Not complaining though, as it was great for the Country Village Fair, where I had a stall for my goodies. Sold loads! Hugs, Carol S.xx

"this says either "Friend" or "Ship"...' Hahahaha....that tickled my funny bone. Either way all you did to create this wonderful card shows so much talent and creativity. I love your bamboo and the fussy cutting and all your great extra details. She's a real beauty!
